Funko POP: Harley Quinn (PX Exclusive)
Adding another Harley Quinn to my already crowded (or was when it was on display) Harley paraphernalia, I can't get enough of the Clown Princess of Crime! I love her Rebirth look since it's basically an amalgamation of her Margo Robbie and Classic Harley look! #Funko #POP is very generous with their Harleys and this one had to be a must-have for me. So, let's check her out!
This isa "PX Previews" exclusive and I was not at all knowledgeable what that is prior to this review. Looking it up, it reminds me of an online merchant like Entertainment Earth. They sell action figures, statues, etc that revolves around the usual fandom that is popular these days. Harley Quinn is definitely part of the mainstream fandom so to have an exclusive of her from an online store is a given. I might check out the store when things are right with me and see what they got going on.
Again, I think this is one of Harley's better outfits. There's no doubt that the blue pigtail is a homage to Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. As far as I know, Harley never sported that color prior to Margot's portrayal. The rest of her outfit has a bit of aforementioned inspiration with the jacket and the booty shorts--but the color is obviously classic Harley. Definitely a good look for Harleen.
My other POP Harley Quinn Exclusive also has the same idea in the back of the box with the whole "DC Superheroes" and then an art representing exclusive Harley. Not really revealing any other figures since this is an exclusive.
As far as this version of Harley, I already stated that I adore it. I know that there are more than a handful of people who don't like Suicide Squad but a lot of people do like Margot's performance. Her looks had some mixed reception. Regardless of that though, Harley's rebirth look took some inspiration from her DCEU look such as the boy shorts, the jacket, and one of her pigtails colored teal. But all in all, Harley sports the red and black look along with the pale skin. Funko did a magnificent job sculpting the little details with this look. The boots have laces, her corset is a different layer from her body, and her chain is hanging down. As usual, I don't have a lot of great things to say about the hair sculpt, but as always, it's not terrible; far from it. The boom box is also a neat little addition; there is some efforts placed on it and it has Batman's logo on it which is neat.
The pose is definitely anarchy-like. looks like she wants to make some noise and doesn't give a flying f*ck who doesn't like it. Definitely perfect for Harley, that's for sure. I like it.
Coloring is actually pretty nice. The red is bold and the black, is... black. Her skin is pale but not awfully white and the gold hair is actually done well. I like how the tips of her pigtails turned out--the red is a different shade form her clothing, which is a good thing. Though there is one accidental red paint in the front on Harley's bangs. Guess she had a hiccup when she was dyeing her hair, eh? Also, checking out Harley's backside, her gun is also sculpted quite nice, ain't it?
Now, just to clarify, this is the Harley Quinn costume in question. At least, I think this is the one that Funko was going for with a few liberty in the design. A lot more liberty than Harley is having in this cover, anyways.
Again, I don't have the other Harley #POP to compare. Shame. But She does look amazing on her own.
In conclusion, I do like this. It's an exclusive, but it's easily accessible through BigBadToyStore and it's not too far above the usual price point of your normal POPs. I like the pose, I like the execution with the sculpt, and despite the red mark that wasn't supposed to go in her hair, the paint is still done well. I definitely recommend this to any Harley Quinn fans who are out there collecting every POP she owns. One won't be disappointed, that's fo sure. Well, that's about it for this review!
Until Next Time!
